Wine lovers who visit Edivo Vina in Croatia are now able to tour the underwater winery with a wetsuit and a guide. Owned by Ivo and Anto Šegović and Edi Bajurin, Edivo Vina’s approach to wine is a treat for aficionados’ palette and spirit of adventure.

After being aged three months above water, the wine is put into clay amphorae jugs and stored underwater in the Adriatic sea at about 16 degrees Celsius for two years. This unique process doesn’t harm the wine at all, but rather enhances it by adding a special pinewood aroma.

When brought up from the underwater wine cellar, the amphorae are covered in shells and coral, which make them gorgeous and one-of-a-kind gifts. The winery sells bottled wine too, in case customers prefer a more conventional packaging.
